NICELY UPDATED ON A CORNER LOT with new landscaping in the huge backyard with side access on both sides of this single level home. All windows & exterior doors have been replaced in the previous two years. 4 bedroom, 2 bath with a newer kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances! Indoor laundry, laminate, tile and carpet Interior with a nice view of the bay. Conveniently located near the new Antioch BART station and highway 4 access! You must see this Gem in order to truly appreciate how beautiful this home is. Listed at $499,988!

Susan has been an absolute blessing to Allan & I. She was there every step of the way, and went above and beyond the duty of a real estate professional. She is number 1 in my book! She truly is the best in the business. I highly recommend her in the sale of one’s home. I give her a diamond over 5 stars. ~ Alison R.

We had the pleasure of working with Susan Redgrave on the sale of our home in Brentwood. The experience, which can be stressful, was overwhelmingly positive, thanks entirely to Susan. She put together an effective plan that took us from preparing the house through to closing, and each step along the way was clearly laid out and explained fully. Any questions that we had along the way were answered quickly, & accurately, and always with patience, and a positive attitude. Susan did an excellent job of communicating progress, timing, next steps, and etc., during the entire process. She took on the burden of coordinating painters, landscapers, carpet cleaners, house cleaners and stagers, who transformed the home into an attractive and desired property. She hosted a brokers tour and held open houses, which generated additional interest in the home. We ended up with multiple offers, all over the asking price. This allowed us to select the one that we thought was the best fit for the neighborhood. She even helped us on the purchase of our new place, by offering insight and advice on properties that we were looking at. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone who is thinking of selling, or buying, in the Brentwood area. Besides being fun, and easy to work with, she is the epitome of professionalism, is extremely hard-working, and an excellent communicator. it was the easiest real estate transaction that I've been a part of. ~Allan R.

My sister and I had to sell our mother's house as she recently passed. We chose Susan Redgrave at Dudum Realty based upon a recommendation from a friend of mine. We could not have been in better more capable hands. Susan handled everything. She was very prompt, excellent communication and she acted professionally at all times. She let us make our own decisions but chimed in and offered advice and direction when we needed it. In the past I have worked with other real estate agents and normally they take a look around, create a list of things that need to be done to make the house attractive and place all that responsibility squarely in the laps of the seller. Susan was not like that. She found things that needed to be addressed and she took the lead and fixed them. She had many contacts that would come over and fix things immediately. My sister and I live 45 min to an hour away from Brentwood and we found Susan's help invaluable. Bottom line we got multiple offers and sold the house above asking price due to the abilities that Susan and Dudum Realty offers. I would highly highly recommend Dudum and Susan. In fact I have already done so with my children's mother who is moving out of Brentwood soon. If you are looking to sell or buy in the Brentwood and surrounding areas, you cannot go wrong in choosing Dudum Realty and Susan Redgrave. She is fantastic. ~Scott H.

WHERE MEDIATION BRINGS RESOLUTION

Telephone: 800-516-7721

Realtors, If your clients have a dispute, tell them “don’t take it to court, take it to mediation” – a process where the parties remain in control and work with a neutral third-party to reach a resolution and avoid a lengthy and costly legal battle. Under the C.A.R. Residential Purchase Agreement, parties lose valuable rights if they file legal action without first attempting mediation. LANDISPUTE is a mediation provider that: • •

Listens closely to the parties to identify the issues in dispute Makes observations and recommendations to assist both parties in reaching resolution

LANDISPUTE’S mediator is a licensed real estate broker and attorney with over 32 years of experience in real estate law litigating and mediating a wide variety of disputes. We provide mediation services throughout the Bay Area and the Sacramento Valley

ANNUAL PREDICTIONS I promise not to ever tell you that I have 2020 vision, but this is the time for what we might see in the new year. For the past few years I have made the attempt to prepare all of you for what we may see in the real estate market based on trends that we have seen developing. On occasion, I have been correct but statistically not often enough to think that I can predict what is coming. As is has been said, making predictions is very difficult, especially if they’re about the future. Nonetheless, I shall attempt again to help us see what may happen in 2020, this time using my X-ray glasses. Prices For the past year price have not moved very much (this applies to our market in the East Bay) for the past year or so. Some prices have increased, primarily in the lowest priced homes and areas that have them and some have decreased, primarily in the higher priced homes. The reason appears to be fairly straightforward; incomes have not really moved very much and the number of people who are on the lower end of the income scale who want to buy homes outnumber the number of them available. In the higher priced homes, the inventory is enough for the demand to a point that prices have been soft. I suspect that this trend will continue into the year for at least until the election in November. Inventory We often hear that there is not enough inventory for the demand of housing in our area. IT depends upon what you are looking for. Truly, affordable housing is in a tremendous shortage here and will continue to be as demand overall forces prices up and there is not nearly enough development to sate the demand. The statement is true for this market. For homes that are higher priced, there is more than adequate supply for the demand. For those homes in the middle of the two ends of the prices scale, we should see an increase in inventory as people are moving out of state, according to several reports and other predictions, as well as my immediate experience that most of the people that list their homes with me are leaving California. We shall see what impact this has on prices and demand. Mortgage rates Mortgage interest rates have been locked into a fairly tight range between 3.5% and 4.5% for the past 18 months or so. There are many reasons why this may be true but to be sure, one of them is not getting much exposure at this time. The Federal reserve is flooding cash into our monetary system right now. While this should keep the interest rates low (this is very important to the Federal Government as debt service is becoming a difficult burden to the budget) it will also inflate, at some point, the currency and the dollar will just not purchase what it used to. There has been no evidence of that happening yet, but it is worth looking after. Our Suggestions for 2020 If you are thinking of buying or selling in 2020, sooner will be better than later. For more information or for some long term planning, please contact us at 925-308-7045 or email at caseteam@intero.com. We also will be posting updates on www.johnanddianacase.com

FOR AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION THEN THINK MAINTENANCE By Patrick McCarran ~ Real Estate Broker The rain may have started and it may be wet still but the weather will be worse soon so there is still time to do some deferred maintenance to make sure your home is in tip-top shape. Even if you aren’t planning to sell your home, you should still add these chores to your list to help preserve your home’s value and help avoid major repairs later on.

Don’t forget the backyard! Is it time to condition your deck? Be sure to hammer in any loose nails, or replace them with galvanized deck screws. Replace any broken boards or rails. Consider renting a power washer to clean dirt and mildew from the wood, and then apply an all-weather sealer or stain. Cover and protect that patio furniture from the weather.

Walk Around the Outside Check for any past damage. Look for those sagging, loose and leaking gutters. Now is the right time to clean out the gutters. Is your roof missing any shingles, or if tile are there any slipped out of place, or is there any water damage under the eaves? A common nuisance is foliage growing in and on the roof, such as grass and weeds or an overhanging tree. Check the valleys where the slope of the roof meets, this is a common area where debris forms or birds make a home and will cause leaks. Mother Nature is a formidable force and over time you’re your home will prove no match. Promptly schedule repairs for those items you can’t do yourself.

Check your fences and repair any broken fence boards to protect from future storms. If you have good neighbor fences you may add a small board at the base to make sure the board don’t fall out during the next wind storm. It is a good idea to stain your fences once a year to extend the life of your fence. If you are just moving in what a great time to get started. Clean the pool if it has been covered all winter. Wash windows, screens and windowsills; repair any past damage.

Walk around your yard as if you were a first-time visitor. What impression does your home make? Be sure to clear away fallen branches and leaves. A great idea is a vegetable garden we have a great climate in the area and it is very rewarding to have food you grew yourself not to mention educational if you have children. Prune shrubs and trees to keep them manageable. If your irrigation water supply has been off for the winter, turn it back on. Test your automatic sprinkler system or connect your water hose and check for cracks and leaks. Replace old washers or sprinkler heads.

Take A Tour Inside The first step in any successful endeavor is to make a list. Start by going around to each room and make a list of things to do in each room. Then dive in. Dust walls and ceilings to remove cobwebs and wash any grimy areas, don’t forget the ceiling fans. Wash window curtains or remove drapes for dry cleaning, dust the blinds. Deep clean rugs and carpets. Dust and polish wood or laminate floors. Don’t forget the kitchen cabinets with a little maintenance such as Old English can really extend the life of your cabinets and give the whole room a fresh look. Check the central air-conditioning unit for debris and obstructions it is important to have good air flow for maximum efficiency and to prolong the life of the unit. Vacuum the main condenser coil on top of the unit. Check the operating condition of window air-conditioning units; remove

and wash filters in mild soapy water. Make sure all exhaust fans and vents are clean and clear. Don’t forget to remove the lint buildup from the clothes dryer vent. One often-overlooked area is the fireplace. Be sure to sweep ashes carefully into your fireplace’s ash pit or into a dustpan. If you used it frequently then you may want to call a professional chimney sweep to have it cleaned and lower risk of fire. Clean and lightly oil fireplace tools. Look around for clutter. Are there items you don’t use any longer? If you are planning on moving, what items will you not need? Consider having a garage sale and then either donate or trash the remaining items. And lastly, possibly the most important of all, don’t forget to replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors even if they are not dead put some fresh ones in (and remember to recycle the old ones). You may have missed it this year but in the future plan to change them when you change your clock for daylight savings. Although performing these chores may be dreaded task, they go a long way in maintaining and even enhancing the attractiveness and quality your home and save this list for the spring, it will go quicker if have started now.
